Rock Camp for Grown Ups is an intensive, three-day music and mentoring program taking place the weekend of April 13-15, 2018. The grown-up* version of our summer camp, this program brings together people from different walks of life and all levels of musical experience for a long weekend of instrument lessons, songwriting, band practice, and workshops, all culminating in a showcase concert at The Tranzac. Classes are taught by experienced Toronto-based artists and professional musicians in small, focused groups of students. Sliding scale tuition makes the program accessible to people from a range of income levels.
*Women (transgender & cisgender), gender non-binary, and trans* folks who will be 19 or older during the camp session may apply.
Rock Camp makes a great gift for a special person in your life on the occasion of a birthday, anniversary, mother's day or other significant event!

ROCKER SELECTION & NOTIFICATION
Participants are selected by a committee seeking to establish a balanced and diverse camp population in relation to instrument, age, previous musical experience, economic status, geography and community. We anticipate receiving more applications than spots available, meaning we may not be able to accept everyone who applies. Musicianship or experience with an instrument is not a factor in selection - all levels of music experience welcome! Additional information about the program will be sent with acceptance letters.
Campers choose which instrument to learn: guitar, bass guitar, drums, or keyboards. Please indicate first and second choice of instrument on the application. Due to the need to acquire gear in advance, you cannot change your selection after you send in your application, and you cannot change instruments during the program.
Instruments will be provided, but if you have your own guitar or bass, you may bring it. Please note that Girls Rock Camp Toronto does not accept liability for personal instruments.
